I think we can safely say this is ignored on linux but not on Darwin/ 
Windows/BeOS. I may be mistaken here, but if I recall well vlc path  
is only set on Darwin/Windows/BeOS in the misc/*_specific.c files.

Moreover on Mac OS X we have some specific code to spot the  
framework. And for the other platforms it depends: WinCE ignore argv 
[0] whereas Win32 uses it...

Hope this helps,
